Their necks are long and outstretched as if they are both wondering what is going on over there.   Made by Paulette and Farlan Quam, these two curious bears are bundled together with a beautiful selection of beads including rose quartz, tigers eye, coral, and turquoise.  They both have inlaid turquoise eyes. The smaller bear is carved from raspherry serpentine, and the large bear is carved from jet.  Their fur is detailed all around.  They are spectacular!

Size: 2.25" H x 4" L x 2.25" W

Bears are the guardians of the western gate in Zuni Pueblo.  They are associated with healing at all levels, protection, and a reminder to restore oneself during the winter months.  In some traditions a part of the bear is rubbed all over infants to imbue them with power, strength, and good health.

Traditionally, Zuni carvings are symbolically fed cornmeal.   Each Zuni fetish comes in a box with a descriptive card and a tiny bit of corn meal to tide them over until they reach you.
